Happy International Women’s Day!





Guria held a massive rally in Varanasi with over 15,000 women in attendance from Varanasi, Jaunpur, Ghazipur, Mau, and Azamghar. The rally was focused on child trafficking, child prostitution, and rape.


Hundreds of rescued victims came with their families, and shared their stories with the crowd. The survivors talked about the terrible exploitation they endured at the hands of traffickers, brothel keepers, and brick kiln owners. They also shared the struggles and humiliation they faced trying to get help from police and the administration. The survivors also spoke out against unsafe migration and shared with fellow women the necessary precautions to take to prevent trafficking.


We will never be silent about the police misconduct that allows women, children, and men, to be enslaved. During the rally we also discusses Guria’s report 100 Cases of Human Trafficking, Child Prostitution, and Rape, which you can read here: https://docs.google.com/…/1g0gxKodI3-CcZSK9LEa4jAQYm-Y…/edit
